Candlelighters


Want to know more?

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, lives are turned upside down in an instant. Not just for the child but for their parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and extended family. Priorities change, everyday concerns suddenly seem trivial and a future once so bright and so full of hope can appear bleak and daunting. Getting well again can be a long and challenging journey, physically, emotionally and even financially.

Helping and supporting those children and their families throughout that journey is why Candlelighters was formed more than 40 years ago and it is why they are still here today.

Because Candlelighters was founded by, and is still run by, parents of children who have or have had cancer and the medical staff who treat them, they understand the trauma and the turmoil of that diagnosis and how the support and care needed may differ from family to family.

So, whether it be through the support of the friendly staff and experienced counsellors, that ‘home away from home’ environment they nurture on the ward and at The Square, their family support centre 2 minutes’ walk from the hospital, or the vital research into new treatments and cures they fund, they are here to help.

Candlelighters opened The Square in 2015. Here, families can enjoy a tea or coffee in a non-clinical environment, have a massage or talk to someone who will help them cope. All services are provided free of charge.

Candlelighters also make sure all members of the family are being looked after and organise days out and activities for parents, siblings and grand-parents throughout the year.

I want to sign up to a ‘Candlelighters’ funded place on a cycling tour – what do i do?

To take advantage of a Candlelighters’ charity-funded place on the Ride25 Leeds to Paris cycling tour, you will need to pay a £250 deposit and then raise a further £1150 for the Candlelighters.  This can be fundraised online or paid directly to the charity 2 months before the event departs on 31st August 2016.

To book your charity-funded place on the Leeds to Paris cycling tour, or if you simply need more information, all you have to do is give us a call on 0113 345 2345.  Alternatively, book your place online below. Once you’ve booked your charity funded place, Candlelighters will then work with you to help you with fundraising ideas and plans.

We will then be in touch to talk bikes, shirt, helmets, shorts and training…… what are you waiting for? Get signed up!
